Classy Ladies

Okay, so a lot of you guys are writers and some of you are parents. I think we can all agree that names are vitally important.

I mean, no one wants their kid getting beat down on the playground for having some goofy name that you burdened him with at birth. And reviewers have enough things to be critical about when it comes to our writing, why give them further ammo by choosing inappropriate names? We spend hours obsessing about choosing a name that will embody all of the perfect characteristics we want for our child/fictional character and demonstrate to the world exactly who we hope this person will become.

Now let me introduce you to sisters Annalynne and Angel (yes, you read that right, ANGEL) McCord.

Um...yeah. Guess it's clear what their parents were hoping to tell the world when they named their daughters and it looks like they're both doing a fantastic job of living up to their names. Bravo girls. BRAVO.

Of course, with bodies like that, who cares what their names are right?

I'm sure they're both sweet as candy and nice as pie too.

The one on the left looks like she wants us to smell her armpit.

Sigh. Destined for Bimbo right from the signing of the birth certificate.

Names are hard!!!

Ha ha where dot you come up with this stuff.

So in other words their parents were hoping they would become porn stars right from the get go? Classy.

Matthew Rush said...

Also, what's the "Wet Republic?" Never mind, I probably don't want to know.

I liked when McCord was on Nip/Tuck. Is that show still on? Is 90210 still on?

Kelly said...

McCord was awesome on Nip/Tuck. She played evil well.
And why do parents do that to their kids?
When I was teaching, a girl in my class was named Crystal Lear. And yes her middle name was Shanda. I kid you not.
I hope she's not dancing on a pole today.

Kelly Lyman said...

LOL. I like the ending of this post. Bravo girls. BRAVO. I was wondering about the Wet Republic too...

Thanks for the treatment of waiting!

Mr. J has had a HUGE crush on Annalynne McCord since he saw her play Eden on Nip/Tuck. Until last week when I showed him a pic of her in a magazine. Her second toe is at least an inch to two inches longer than her big toe, "Aw, man. That totally ruins it." And he said I had freak toes....

Who are these girls? Am I that out of touch? That cake looks delicious.

Colene Murphy said...

Wet Republic? ew. That cake makes me feel ooky. And not much stands between me and cake. Might be the half naked girls standing so close though...

Jen Daiker said...

Wow. Well done to the both of them for remaining upstanding citizens *claps* BRAVO.

With names like theirs, there are bound to be mistakes.

Elana Johnson said...

I do obsess about names, I'll admit it. And I might kill someone to look like that, so yeah.

Carolyn V. said...

Yeah, you gotta watch what you name your kids. Characters in a book, not so much. =)

Marsha Sigman said...

The point is to keep them OFF the pole. Not give them a headstart.

Krispy said...

The pic kind of scares me. Annalynne seems like a needlessly complicated name.

The best name story my friend told me has to do with this name: La-a. How do you pronounce that? LaDASHa. I KID YOU NOT. TRUE STORY.

Sara B. Larson said...

Yeah, names are a tricky, tricky business. Especially for your own children who have to live with your choice forever. NO pressure. Same with characters.

And yeah, that cake? I don't know what that is, but it sounds like something I don't want to know about, much less celebrate in cake form.

It's funny you should blog about names. Hubby and I just had a talk/fight about our next boy's name (not that I plan on having any more boys, I have two sons and there is way too much testosterone in our house now, I need to have two girls!). We had settled on Logan years ago (actually, I settled, hubby really liked it) but I was never completely happy with it so we finally picked a better name - Steven. I'm much happier now.

Names are tricky. Remember that song, A boy named Sue?
